This common complaint from colleagues in the staffroom led me on a journey of discovery into my learners’ reading habits and into the intriguing world of action research.

This Trainer & Testbank Package is now available for the First and Advanced Exam and highly recommended as preparation for the computer-based exam.

Linguaskill is a new Cambridge English online and adaptive English language assessment tool. Basically, Linguaskill serves the same purpose as the Business Language Testing Service (BULATS), but for general English.
Computer-based testing has become increasingly popular in recent years. Swiss Exams – Authorised Provider for Cambridge English Exams and award-winning Cambridge Platinum Centre, has set up CB labs across Switzerland in Basel, Berne, Chur, Lucerne, St.Gallen, Winterthur and Zurich in order to handle the demand for CB testing.
As you know, Swiss Exams – Cambridge English Platinum Exam Centre - has gradually been expanding its services across Switzerland with new exam centres/locations in Bern, Basel and Lucerne. In January we will be announcing yet another geographic expansion which should make our award-winning services available to more schools and teachers in less-developed regions.
We launched Linguaskill in the Autumn of 2016. The Linguaskill development in Cambridge UK is rapidly progressing and we will have some ground-breaking news for the new year.
